FISCAL IMPACT:
The proposed 2015  boat rental fees and operating schedule for the Riva Row Boat House and the rental fees and operating schedule for the Recreation Center are consistent with the basis for those approved in the 2015 Budget.

Riva Row Boat House: There are no proposed changes in the 2015 operating schedule from 2014. There will be two to three times during the year when the Boat House will have a delayed opening due in part to events on the water and the use of the kayaks to support the events, i.e CB&I Tri- The Woodlands and the Memorial Hermann Texas Ironman.
